    No, Tribunal can only award you the number of points that relate to the descriptors you satisfy.  Of course, if they think you meet a higher-scored descriptor then they'll award you accordingly and this might put you up to or over the 8.  For example, DWP decision awarded me 11 points daily living including 2 for food prep.  Tribunal decided that I should get 4 points for food prep which put me up to 13.
